    Default Do you wear an apron?


    I've never worn an apron and have made a total mess out of too many of
    my clothes. This year my brother was looking for ideas for me a
    Christmas gift and I mentioned an apron. He got me one and I wore it
    this morning while making waffles. I think I could get used to just
    wiping my hands on the front of it and not worrying about getting dirty.

    Nope. When I was a kid, I always wore one when cooking. So did my mom.
    She even got us some that had sleeves on them. They were really pretty
    silly. Made them quite hot to wear.

    I did have one that I bought as an adult. I think it was Coca Cola or
    something like that. I got it either for really cheap or free. I wore it
    once when cooking breakfast at work for about 200 people. I did feel that I
    needed it then because I was working in an unfamiliar kitchen with
    unfamiliar tools and such. I no longer have it.

    I don't think I need to wear an apron. I am not messy in the kitchen. The
    only time I wish I had one on is when I am doing dishes by hand. And then I
    need a plastic one. I don't know why but I have always had this problem. I
    splash water along the edge of the sink and then get my shirt in it. So I
    have a wet line along the front of my shirt.

    If I am doing something where I think my hands will be a mess, I tear off a
    few sheets of paper towels and keep them handy. I would never wipe my hands
    on my clothes or even an apron.

    The 'washing up' in my kitchen usually involves a special Roul'Pat mat. I
    love that tool. It stays put, doesn't stick to biscuit dough, bread or pie
    crusts and protects the counter. OTOH it is a challenge to rinse. Often as
    not, I wind up with a splattered shirt or a shoe full of water. One day I'm
    going to give up, go outside and use the garden hose. Polly

    No. I wear old clothes when I cook. Generally I wash my hands if
    they're messed up, but if I have just a small dab of something, I use
    my shirt. After I lick my fingers.

    Mind you, this is if I'm cooking for just the two of us. If I have
    company,
    I practice much more careful hygiene.

    I wear an apron when cooking. No matter how careful or how short of a
    period of time I'm in the kitchen something always splatters on my
    clothes. I got tired of pre-treating stains and the cobblers apron
    solves that problem. But I don't wipe my hands on it, I keep either a
    wet/soapy paper towel or dish cloth nearby. Usually I will have just
    run a bit of water in the sink with a small squirt of dish detergent
    so I can quickly plunge hands into it to remove grease, meat juices,
    or whatever.

    I am so far from using an apron that I am sure I'd never remember
    to use one even if I had one. I wash my hands if they are dirty,
    I almost dry my clean hands on my t-shirt. I am pretty a pretty
    neat cook, and I pay attention to things that could
    cross-contaminate too.

    Daughter, Grands and I bake each Christmas season to put together
    (now) about thirty-five large boxes of breads, cakes, cookies and
    candies. The December past was our third year of this do, which we
    gathered together on the 23rd to box, and we were laughing at what
    each of our "baking uniforms" were...very old, no other use clothes,
    none of us aproned. I announced that my Easter gift to all would be
    an apron, and I found a very good online buy for common bib aprons, in
    colors, with three deep pockets across the bottom, and I think I
    remember them being in the $7+ range. Family loved them, and without
    them knowing I'd kept a white one at home for myself, they each picked
    their favorite color to leave me one in (I think) brown. We'll all be
    happy to not have to be our "cooking clothes" for the coming Christmas
    bake, that's for sure.

    Aprons are for more than keeping you clean. Some local health department
    regs for food service require aprons under some conditions. This is to keep
    stuff that is already on people from getting into the food, the same reason
    that regs often require the use of disposable food service gloves under some
    conditions.

    I wear them when it's more important to be extra clean, for example, when
    making sausage. And of course I wear them when I am doing something that
    tends to be messy. I also wear them whenever more than a few people are
    being fed for all the above reasons.

    Depends on what I'm doing and what I'm wearing. If I'm wearing white
    and working with red berries, I wear an apron. Or change my clothes.

    Sometimes I do, but yesterday, I made blueberry waffles and I
    accidentally got blueberry juice on my clothes. I need to wear an apron.

    ***Chemo doesn't wear an Apron...Everything he cooks has no juices,
    grease, or moisture left in it, turns his food (and his guests) to
    charcol...He cremates everything so there's no chance of anything
    getting splashed up and ruining his clothing...Extra Well done
    anyone...?...*smirk*

    I always wore an apron when cooking in the restaurant. You get in the
    habit of wiping off your fingertips on the apron.
    It was a habit I had a hard time breaking because at home, if it's
    just myself and friend, I wear whatever and I was wiping
    my fingers on my clothes. I don't do that anymore. If what I'm
    going to cook is especially messy or splashy etc. I'll wear one.

    If I'm cooking a special meal for guests, I'll be in 'better' clothes,
    so then I'll wear an apron to keep clean.

    I have several hanging alongside a counter. Sometimes I wear one. The
    kangaroo pockets are useful for keeping potholders ready. My
    grandchildren gave me a hand-painted one too embarrassingly
    complementary to be repeated.
